Changing Attitudes of Women towards Family-Related Tasks in Young Adulthood.
Merriam, Sharan B.; Hyer, Patricia
Sex Roles, v10 n9-10 p825-35 May 1984
Two-hundred seventy women, divided into three age groups and three income levels, were asked to evaluate the importance of five family-related developmental tasks, as defined by Robert Havighurst. Results affirm that younger women facing decisions about marriage, family, and home consider these tasks significantly less important than do older women. (Author/KH)
